Reader reviewed by Amy Ward

Terrifying yet intriguing.  Those are my first thoughts after reading The Adoration of Jenna Fox by Mary Pearson.  The basic premise:  Jenna Fox, age 17, wakes up after being in a coma for one year.  She has to relearn everything, walking, talking, thinking, etc.  But something is off.  What secret are her parents hiding from her? 


And that secret is HUGE!  As I read, I got glimpses of the truth.  And that's how the book reads, teasing and tormenting each moment.  I felt Jenna's pain, confusion, and finally horror as she realized what happened to her.  Pearson is an excellent storyteller, revealing all things in her own time.  I know this review is secretive but I don't want to give too much away!  It's better going into it not knowing much!  It makes the reveal that much more exciting and revolting!  Definitely pick up this book and read it!
